SM 2.1b1 looked more ready than FF 4.0b7 as the upcoming beta 7 of Firefox 4 has been delayed for several weeks due to several crash-inducing bugs.

Weekly Status Report, W39/2010
Just before I went off to fly to the US, I kicked off the SeaMonkey 2.0.9 release process to get our next regular security updates going. Callek helped with some steps along the way, so that we got everything off and builds out for testing even though I was mostly offline.
- Build Infrastructure:
I updated Linux builders to a new gcc 4.5 and enabled that compiler, which should make us run faster on that platform and matches what Firefox is about to do as well.
As a followup to last week's universal builds hassles, I fixed the file name they are being uploaded to, but from what I hear, now PPC is pretty broken at runtime there.
As probably the last large change for Beta 1, I could get reviews and and land OpenSearch support! (See also my blog post on it)
I also did a patch for backporting some cleanups to Firefox and uploaded my current WIP states for search bar and suggestions in sidebar.
- German L10n:
To make sure that 2.1 Beta 1 can have German L10n, I updated the German localization for dom, security, and suite directories.
- Various Discussions:
SeaMonkey Developer Meeting, updates, 2.1b1 L10n, module owner list, Mozilla website domains, etc.
As I'm here in Silicon Valley on a mission to improve communication between different parts of Mozilla and our project, it's good to know that we have a good number of large and important changes landed right in what is to become SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 1, as well as my plate for any really larger changes in all of this release series being empty. This makes a free and easy feeling and enable me to have some vacation fun as well as those talks with Mozillians around here - and I can also highlight how well SeaMonkey 2.1 is doing when chatting with Firefox people (and Data Manager sounds compelling for some of those, too)!
